<h1>LibNSFB</h1>

<h2>What is LibNSFB?</h2>

<p>LibNSFB is a framebuffer abstraction library, written in C. It is currently in development for use with <a href="/">NetSurf</a> and is intended to be suitable for use in other projects too.</p>

<p>The overall idea of the library is to provide a generic abstraction to a linear section of memory which corresponds to a visible array of pixel elements on a display device. Different colour depths are supported and the library provides routines for tasks such as drawing onto the framebuffer and rectangle copy operations.</p>

<p>LibNSFB currently supports the following as framebuffer providers:</p>

<ul>
<li>Linux framebuffer</li>
<li>X</li>
<li>SDL</li>
<li>VNC</li>
<li>ABLE framebuffer</li>
</ul>

<h2>Source code</h2>

<p>You can <a href="http://source.netsurf-browser.org/trunk/libnsfb/">browse the source code</a> via the online interface. Alternatively, you can check it out of SVN:</p>

<p class="svncommand">$ svn co svn://svn.netsurf-browser.org/trunk/libnsfb</p>

<p>LibNSFB is licensed under the <a href="http://opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php">MIT Licence</a>.</p>

<h2>Contact</h2>

<p>If you would like to help develop LibNSFB, or have questions about the library, please join the NetSurf <a href="http://www.netsurf-browser.org/lists/netsurf-dev">developer mailing list</a>.</p>
